40th Anniversary of data protection Convention 108


Data Protection Day 2021 will be held online on 28 January to notably celebrate this year the 40th Anniversary of the data protection Convention 108 with Latin-American data protection stakeholders.

Regulators of the region will inform the participants on latest developments at national, regional, and international level and will touch upon the advantages of Convention 108 for Latin-American countries. The evolution of Convention 108 into the ‘modernized’ Convention 108+ adds a new dimension to international data flows and cooperation between data protection authorities and will also be addressed.
Speakers will share about the jurisdictional updates and discuss the following questions:

  • What is new on the front of data protection?
  • What advantages (or disadvantages) would involvement in the Convention bring?
  • What does the Convention mean in a post Schrems II era for relationships between Latin-American countries and the EU (and the GDPR)?
  • How could Convention 108 contribute to relationships between Latin-American countries?
  • To submit questions in advance, please contact us at data.protection[at]coe.int.
  • Questions will be accepted live during the event via the online platform Q&A feature.
